Phew

Saturday, July 30th, 2005

Exam over. Thank goodness. How did I do? I dunno, anyway.
Had a weird migraine today. In the morning, I had a visual aura with sparkly lights in my right visual field. Didn’t get a headache after that, but by noon I was noticing my right leg had this weird dull pain which was the same […]

Stressed

Tuesday, July 26th, 2005

I’m stressed about the exam on Friday. I’ve not been on-call for a week, but I’m stressed about going on call this long weekend. I’m stressed because there was a gas leak in the neighbourhood and they’re still trying to fix stuff.
I mentioned the exam on Friday, right?

Busy living, not so much blogging

Monday, July 25th, 2005

It’s funny isn’t it, that when there is the most to talk about, there just isn’t time. First two weeks of July, I started as senior resident in our ward/consult service. Then I spent the entire weekend of July 15-17 on a busy call weekend. Monday after work, of course it’s gym night.
Tuesday night […]

I’m back!

Monday, July 25th, 2005

I left? Yeah, I took an early train on Friday to Montreal and spent the weekend there for a friend’s wedding. Met up with a lot of friends. Very busy weekend. Had a blast. I’ll post something substantial soon, I promise…

Priorities

Wednesday, July 20th, 2005

I barely had time to eat or pee, and my dad yells at me for not wiping dry the bathtub walls after I shower. Talk about priorities.

Time flies

Tuesday, July 19th, 2005

I can barely believe how time flies.
Why can’t you go find yourself
And make me want to know you
Why can’t you go find yourself
And make me want to show you

What a weekend…

Monday, July 18th, 2005

Ugh. I’m so exhausted from the weekend. I was physically in the hospital like over 70 hours this past week, 30 of which were Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This is not including being on-call from Friday night through Monday morning. I went to the gym after work today, for two hours. I’m not really in […]

Compliments

Wednesday, July 13th, 2005

I got two big compliments today.
First one was 5 seconds after I left my door in the morning. And most inappropriate. It was some construction workers, and a supervising policeman (for goodness sakes). Anyway, I didn’t look to see who said it, but I’ll give the policeman the benefit of the doubt and say it […]

Busy and exhausted

Tuesday, July 12th, 2005

If anyone’s been wondering whatever the heck happened to me, I’ve been working. It’s been busy. Especially since I’m senior, I need to get in before 8am every morning. And then there are days like today when I don’t get home until 8pm. And then there’s call. The tiring thing is that it’s not just […]

Survivor

Thursday, July 7th, 2005

Well, I just survived my first 4 days as pediatric neurology senior resident and first night on pediatric neurology call. I am really enjoying it. The work is interesting, and the people are nice! It’s a good combination.
I woke up this morning with quite a terrible headache though. It thankfully eased off over the morning, […]
